Part of finding the best job for you is attending networking events, mixers, and cocktail hours where you can meet new people and make contacts.

Employers want to know their employees can be professional, even in social situations, but networking events can be difficult to navigate. Learning Western expectations of politeness can help you feel more comfortable in unfamiliar situations, and mastering networking customs can help you make a great impression on others!

Attendees of the Mocktail Hour and Networking Training will receive hands-on training from etiquette consultant Catherine Holloway and will be served hors d'oeuvres and non-alcoholic drinks to provide an opportunity to practice the skills learned during the training.

The event will take place in the Tomlinson Hall Lobby and will begin promptly at 5:30 PM.

Attendees should wear *business professional attire*, as described in this article:

However, changing your mind about attending the event at the last minute is not considered an emergency.
